A journey of friendship and self-discovery set in the Italian Alps, The Eight Mountains follows the complex relationship between Pietro and Bruno over four decades.

After meeting as children during many summers in the Italian Alps, the two reunite as adults to build a mountainside cottage, which becomes their refuge for reflection and reconciliation.
